precarious. secretary kerry said it bluntly this is a brazen act of aggression of russia. the u.s. just doesn't know whether putin is moving toward a confrontation across ukraine that would challenge the new government in kiev or whether this is really going to be limited more to the areas most strategic to russia in the crimea where the russian fleet is based. as one person said it to me last night, we are really playing this by ear. secretary kerry had strong words about the diplomatic and economic consequences that russia will pay for this action but it's obvious in every statement that's made that the u.s. does not seek, does not want a military challenge to this action. i was told that not a ship is moving in the mediterranean, not have been put on maneuvers that might be seen as provocative. for much the response is diplomatic and perhaps sanctions and economic. >> david, now we understand that americans now understand seemingly that putin does not care what we think, does not care about the language that secretary kerry used yesterday on american television, is it now sort of a counund

grab continues and to the rescue, john kerry is going to head over there today to tell them to stop it. good luck. >> he's going over to kiev, the capital, which is okay right now. but this peninsula of crimea has been an area which putin said the russian-speaking people there have asked us to come in. their security was jeopardized we had no choice. we had to respond. putin did make one call. that was to china. he explained himself to china, had no interest in heeding the president of the united states who told him on friday don't go in there. europe was convinced putin wouldn't do this in defiance of the other g-7 countries. instead he did it and everyone is scratching their heads saying how did we miss this? >> despite increased efforts at reenforcement in crimea, kerry is going over, set to have discussions there. but he used bold words over the weekend, insisting that despite putin's actions, he's operating from a position of weakness. take a listen. >> let me make it clear. president putin is not operating from a place of strength here. president putin is using force in a complet
well in control of crimea. and the question now, and it's something which john kerry is going to be looking at closely tomorrow, on how he can under it, is what russia does next. and the focus will be on this region here, where i am today, in east ukraine. this is the second biggest city in the country, the industrial heartland, kharkov. many people here have been encouraged with what's happening in ukraine and would ideally like the russians to come in here, too. behind me, you probably can't make it out now, but there is a huge statue of lenin under which there is a group of pro-russian protesters. they occupied this and hoisted the russian flag, and in violence between them and kiev government supporters, many dozens of people were injured. today in doniesk, another area, pro-russians occupied government offices there. the fear is that russia is trying to create the sort of chaos and instability here to justify intervening on behalf of the russian speakers. now, not everybody here would be happy to see the russians come. and clearly, one of the key focuses of john kerry's v

to a meeting. john kerry said regrettably, one member of russia had not appeared for the meeting. this is as russia launches a test missile. amy kellogg is live with the latest developments. what can you tell us? >> reporter: you're getting that before i am. but it's not surprising given the level of tension that exists now. russian president putin said this morning in a possible sign of deescalation that he wants to return to economic cooperation with all traditional partners despite political tensions. and then furthermore, we heard from the head of ukraine security services this morning that things had not necessarily escalated overnight in crimea, which is the area russian troops effectively control. but he did say while he appreciates all the support of the west, he would like at this point to see a little bit more. no one here is asking for western or american troops on the ground. but what they would like is something a little stronger, maybe, for example, some warships in the black sea or i've heard people talk about humanitarian deliveries to ukraine, but in western mili

question now, can vladimir putin get away with it? secretary of state kerry told george stephanopoulos there will be a tough response from u.s. and allies. >> russia may be able to invade crimea. but in the end, russia will isolate itself. >> reporter: already, the markets are punishing putin with the ruble, russia's currency, plunging to all-time lows. but the deed is done. here in crimea, most people have welcomed the russian troops rejecting the pro-western revolution in the other half of their country last week. it's calm on the surface. but as we spoke with a woman holding a ukrainian flag a tiny gesture of defiance against russia, we saw the fierce passions just below the surface. civil war is now a real possibility in ukraine. diplomacy with the russians in control here is where the action is. president obama struggling to come up with some kind of approach that is creative enough to diffuse the tensions and strong enough to get russia to back down. there is no sign of that, george, right now. vladimir putin is getting what he wants. >> that's right. secretary kerry going to be

of the midon, the crisis in the ukraine has changed its face. it hasn't dissipated. and today secretary kerry was greeted in kiev by ukrainians pleading for the continued support of the united states. and so having been so clear voiced in our support of the ukrainian people thus far since the tproe tests began last november, now is the moment when republicans and democrats should stand united in this congress so years from now when a group assembles in kiev marking the anniversary of this grave crisis they will celebrate ukraine's political sovereignty and economic rebirth with more chance of thanks to the united states. so, in what shape should this support come? first, we need to stand together in the next week to deliver serious financial assistance to ukrainian economy that is weak and is growing weaker as this crisis persists. a $1 billion aid package is a good start, but our real work must happen within the structures of the i.m.f., which can provide the potentially tens of billions of dollars necessary to fully right the ukrainian economic ship. and while ukraine does need to undergo e
